MREA now an accredited training provider for six solar roles

The Midwest Renewable Energy Association (MREA) has been awarded Training Provider Accreditation for six renewable energy programs from the Interstate Renewable Energy Council (IREC). MREA is an accredited training provider for the following renewable energy programs: PV Associate, PV Installation, PV Technical Sales, PV Design Specialist, PV Installer Specialist and PV Commissioning & Maintenance.

An IREC credential is a nationally recognized mark of quality training in the clean energy industry. Students, employers, funders, and other stakeholders look for the IREC mark to find high-quality training that meets safety requirements and is aligned with industry needs.

“Accreditation is vital to educational organizations like the MREA because it recognizes compliance with national standards in training and operations, and therefore allows our courses to be approved for professional credentialing programs, exam eligibility and continuing education credits. To the outside world, it’s a stamp of approval regarding our competence and legitimacy,” said Jenny Heinzen, Curriculum Director for the MREA.

As one of the leading accrediting bodies for clean energy training in the United States, IREC’s high standards and rigorous application process require applicants to demonstrate a robust approach to quality in all major areas of training program operations.

As the clean energy economy grows rapidly, employers urgently need to locate and hire well-qualified workers. IREC credentials help job seekers locate high-quality training opportunities that prepare them to enter the clean energy workforce, and help employers identify quality training options for their staff.
